Following the anniversary exhibition “OUR STATE. 75 Years of North Rhine-Westphalia” at the House of History NRW, the Mobile Museum will tour the state as a mobile exhibition for at least four years. Visitors are invited to take part in writing the history of their state by contributing their own exhibits, sharing memories and entering into dialogue with each other. The interactive museum consists of three modules: the exhibition depot in a high-quality High Cube overseas container, equipment in the form of mobile showcases and hands-on stations, and pop-up elements for in-depth discourse. The centerpiece of the Museum Mobil, however, is the container. It is both an exhibition space and an object itself. With the key visual designed for the project in the national colors and a contemporary interpretation of the coat of arms symbols – horse, Rhine and rose – it also draws attention to itself during the journey from place to place and thus brings the museum into the public sphere. The Mobile Museum’s claim – transparency, openness, animation for participation and exchange – runs through the entire design. Inside the exhibition space, a display case system with varying depths constantly rearranges the collection of exhibits and thus also formally picks up on the dynamic character of the constantly growing archive as well as the diversity of the exhibits and their donors. With the help of specially developed Internet-based software, tablets ensure that the background information on the constantly added exhibits is digitally updated.
